Wallabies: Angus Bell calls for improvement in the Australian set-piece

Dylan Coetzee

Wallabies prop Angus Bell is looking for his side to improve in the set-piece ahead of the crucial second Test against Eddie Jones’s England on Saturday.

Australia played for 44 minutes a man down after a Darcy Swain red card and still managed to impressively claim a 30-28 victory over the Red Rose in Perth.

Better execution

Bell is focused on improving his execution and refuses to get caught up in the hype and external commentaries inevitable in Test rugby as the Wallabies look to seal the series as soon as possible.

“Really don’t really think about it,” he told reporters.

“For me it’s about execution and I was pretty unhappy with our set-piece. It could be better.

“We’re not here to be even with England, we’re here to dominate them.

“We didn’t quite get that in the right area, the red card didn’t help but we’ll bring another step up in our set piece (in Brisbane).”

Return of Tupou

Reds prop Taniela Tupou should be available for selection, and Bell is looking forward to his impact and says he is one of the best in the world.

“We all know Taniela’s a beast; one of the world’s best and in every single facet of the game Taniela has a massive impact,” he said.

“If he does get picked he’ll do a job.”
